About the Teacher - Bal'd Lightning

Bal’d made his Orchestra Hall (Chicago) stage debut at the age of 4 with a 1/2-size violin and it’s been pretty much downhill into vaudevillian shenanigans ever since! He brings bombastic blasts of bass and uke-electricity to the stage and is often found combining forces with Sunny Sighed to bring the spirit of Broadway to burlesque.
